F1 23: Highly requested livery arrives for Christmas


F1 23 Lando Norris Pro Challenge

With everything starting to wrap up for the year, you’d be forgiven for thinking there’d be no more F1 23 Pro Challenges in 2023. Codemasters has had other ideas, however, with a surprise Lando Norris Pro Challenge hitting the game just in time for Christmas.

Taking place around a popular track, and with a highly demanded reward on the line, let’s take a look at the latest F1 23 Pro Challenge.

Norris Pro Challenge now live

We’ve not seen much of Lando Norris in F1 23, but that’s all changed with the newest Pro Challenge. The young Brit sets the benchmark around his home circuit of Silverstone, challenging players to beat his time in the remarkable MCL37.

Ending 2023 with nine podiums after a horrendous start to the season, it was a magnificent turnaround for the Woking-based team. Silverstone was one of their better weekends, with Norris finishing second and Oscar Piastri narrowly missing out on his first podium by finishing fourth.

This then is the perfect track to take on Lando and beat his time of 1:29.043. Completing the challenge rewards players with Norris’ Chrome helmet from the 2023 British Grand Prix. Not only that, arguably the most demanded livery in Formula 1 is also up for grabs.

Fans fell in love with McLaren’s Chrome livery when it was revealed during the summer. Used exclusively at Silverstone, the livery was a throwback to the iconic silver McLaren days and was created in partnership with Google Chrome.

Ever since the British Grand Prix, fans have been calling for the McLaren Chrome livery to be added to F1 23, and now Codemasters have answered the call. Along with Lando’s helmet, all players who complete this week’s Pro Challenge will unlock the McLaren Chrome livery to use in F1 World.

Christmas truly has come early in F1 23, with one last Pro Challenge for the year to complete and two incredible rewards available for those who succeed.
